Chelsea news: Emenalo discusses Conte's reaction to Man Utd signing Lukaku

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been fined 8,000 pounds ($11,000) following his sending-off during a match against Swansea City last month, the Football Association said on Wednesday.

The Spain global managed just 13 starts in Conte's first season as the London club went on to lift the Premier League and he was anxious about his future.

The 24-year-old has scored nine goals in the 2017-18 Premier League season following Morata's header in Chelsea's 3-1 win against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge last weekend. "I wasn't playing, I wasn't really part of (Conte's) initial plans and at that point you can do two things".

"You can just give up and accept you are not going to be part of the team or the club in the future. In this season he has continued to work very hard and he's shown me great commitment, great behaviours".

"I think that he enjoys a lot of respect at the senior level, the board level and the ownership level of the club, so there should be no worries at all". "For me, Swansea was wasting time. I understand his philosophy and must say I am very proud of this, also very happy I am where I want to be and that's all down to belief and trust and hard work".

"Well, I would be lying if I say that I wasn't anxious". I was frustrated because of this situation and tried to say again.

Fabregas, who was a member of the Arsenal side that lost to Barcelona in the 2006 Champions League final, will be 32 when his present contract is up in 2019 and Chelsea policy is to only offer one year contracts to players aged 30 and over. At the same time I'm very happy because I'm where I want to be.
